The mission of The Rotary Foundation (TRF) is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation of Rotary International and is governed by an independent board of directors.

TRF is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians around the world and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

A long-standing worldwide Rotary calling is: doin' good. Doin' good has been the mission for the Foundation since its inception in 1912 — the same year our Jacksonville club was founded. The Foundation committee is among the most active groups and important in our club. Foundation oversight is the responsibility of the District.

The Rotary Club of Jacksonville is an international leader
in TRF participation and financial support

Our District 6970 Foundation Committee's mission is to support each club's initiatives from fund raising to project fulfillment. Each of the 11 sub-committees addresses a special area and is manned by Rotarians who understand the process to make changes in our local and world communities by using the opportunities of The Rotary Foundation.

There are many opportunities for you to be involved in tax deductible giving opportunities, bequests and support of a multitude of programs.
